STUART — The Martin County Sheriff’s Office is putting the brakes on speeding motorists and tailgaters.
As part of the Florida Department of Transportation’s “Aggressive Driving Enforcement Week,” the agency plans to saturate local roadways with road patrol deputies from Feb. 11-17, according to a press release.
Deputies plan to curb aggressive driving by showing zero tolerance toward motorists who speed, fail to use turn signals, pass in emergency lanes or road shoulders and engage in similar obnoxious driving behavior, according to the press release.
And don’t expect a free pass after Feb. 17: the agency has received grant funding for the formation of a year-round aggressive driving program, according to the release.
The sheriff’s office encourages motorists to report aggressive drivers by calling 911.
